Chamber Charity of the Year

We're determined to use this year of centenary celebrations to shine a light on our charity members and do all we can to encourage members to make connections with, and provide their time and professional expertise to, those who need it.

We hope to inspire each and every Chamber member to get involved, both by undertaking activities ourselves at the Chamber and sharing them with you through connected, and also by publishing a list of charity members that need our help each month.
